Not to go too much further on this thread, but we seem to be discussing what some call "petty" thieves, and then the discussion is veering towards some higher crimes. Some of the discussion is how do we deal with these "low lifes" to bring them back into society? Well, I'd also like to look at the complete other end of the scale ... the high end of society. What do we say about the persons that seem to have so much money, so many lawyers, and so many laws that enable them to get away with things which the "common" people don't even have the opportunity to attempt? What about hiding behind your lawyers, making completely ridiculous claims, making money off of those claims, then repeating the process with yet another completely ridiculous claim? Earlier there was a comment about certain states that didn't need to be mentioned. Here, I argue that there are certain political parties and their "leaders" that don't need to be mentioned. Are we willing to argue that these persons should also be held accountable to the fullest extent of the law?

You're absolutely right - both parties are full of arrogant liars who are not accountable to anyone for their actions and false claims. Agree completely which is why we need new blood in politics.

While swiping parcels might be considered 'petty' the reason I started the thread was that I view it as a personal type of crime.

When crime hits close to home, I think it tends to evoke a stronger response in most folks. This is not the case with some crime which seem far removed from our lives.

And since this community is focused upon postal systems and its accouchements the best analogy would be considering the illegal sale of current counterfeit stamps online vs. a porch theft of your parcel. Both crimes have negative impact, both are unethical, both carry cost to society. Yet the swiping of a package off your front porch drives a stronger response in my mind.
